n.a.t.o. members. while the nationalities of the troops have yet to be confirmed most of the troops are american. relations between international forces and afghan partners have been reached to a breaking point. >> cenk: indeed, but nonetheless that has never stopped warmonger john mccain. and he gave us this dribble. >> we're leaving and they're making the appropriate adjustments. he's consistently overridden the advice of recommendations of our military leaders, and the chickens are coming home to roost there. >> cenk: wait a minute chickens coming home to roost? are youare you malcolm x? reverend wright? you're saying that we deserved to be attack? he doesn't listen to his commanders, go to general john alan, the top commander in afghanistan and he's incredible about the attacks. watch. >> should americans brace themselves for more attacks? is this going to continue? >> it will. the enemy recognizes this is a vulnerableage. iraq, the signature weapon we hadn't seen before was the i.e.d. we had to adjust to that. here i think the signature attack that we're beginning to see is goi

. and on this, there will be no flexibility with vladimir putin. i will call on our nato allies to keep the greatest military alliance in history strong by honoring their commitment to each devote 2% of their gdp to security spending. today, only three of the 28 nato nations meet this benchmark. i will make further reforms to foreign assistance, to create incentives for good governance, for free enterprise, and for greater trade in the middle east and beyond. i will organize all efforts in the greater middle east under one official, with responsibility and accountability to prioritize efforts and to produce results. i will rally our friends and our allies to match our generosity with their, and i will make it clear to the recipients of our aid that in return for our material support, they must meet the responsibilities of every decent, modern government, to respect the rights of all the citizens, including women and minorities, to ensure civil society, a free media, political parties, and an independent judiciary, and to abide by international commitments to protect our diplomats and o

, pakistan, the middle east, turkey, meeting with leaders of nato, i have a very clear idea of what has to be done to keep this country safe. the threats we face -- terrorism, killing terrorists and stopping them before they can do damage to us, making sure that we stop the spread of nuclear weapons. i agree with john kerry from thursday night, the danger of a nuclear weapon getting in the hands of terrorists one of the greatest threats that america faces. but the one thing that we know from this administration is -- and i -- first of all, i don't claim to have the long political resume that vice president cheney has. that's just the truth. and the american people know that and deserve to know it. but what we know from this administration is that a long resume does not equal good judgment. here are the judgments i would make. my first priority would be to keep this country safe. i would find terrorists where they are and stop them and kill them before they do harm to us. we would stop the spread of nuclear weapons. and we would also strengthen this military, which means providing the eq
